Left-wing radical and NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh has called on Trudeau to implement an emergency vaccination campaign aided by the military and federal personnel.
“I am writing to you today because, as you know, the pandemic is getting worse,” Singh begins in a letter to PM Justin Trudeau.
“Not only are the new cases breaking records in some provinces, but the new measures announced have and will continue to have devastating impacts on many Small and Medium-sized Enterprises and workers. This is particularly true for self-employed workers for those in the restaurant, entertainment and tourism sectors.”
I've written to PM Trudeau.
The pandemic is getting worse — impacting Canadian families and workers.
Parliament must be recalled virtually to restore assistance programs, mobilize support for vaccination drives and aid health care workers.

Singh continues, criticizing Trudeau for the failings of his pandemic response — not because he’s been too authoritarian, but because he hasn’t expanded the COVID welfare state enough.
He subsequently begs Trudeau to aid him in expanding “the current lockdown benefit” and other assistance programs before calling for the unthinkable.
“I am also asking you to use our military and all trained federal personnel to assist in a mass vaccination campaign,” Singh writes. “Canadians are trying to follow public health advice by getting vaccinated. People are lining up for hours in the cold for their third dose — they are doing their part.”
“Your government must do everything in its power to ensure that vaccines are available and administered quickly. The lives of Canadians depend on it. Our health care workers have been working hard for almost 21 months, we need to give them the support they need to keep going.”
Indeed, it has been just shy of two years since pandemic measures were implemented, such as destroying businesses by limiting their capacity or preventing their operation altogether, firing employees for refusing experimental mRNA jabs, preventing people who refuse mRNA jabs from leaving their own country or travelling interprovincially, etc.
It’s also been roughly one year since the government began rolling out the vaccine, using nearly every authoritarian measure at their disposal to compel people to take them by making life hell for those who refuse.
And after one year of mass vaccination, what has been the result? Well, the government’s still diminishing Canadians’ freedoms, and cases are apparently higher than ever before.
Clearly, the vaccine doesn’t work. It isn’t a magic bullet. But if at first you don’t succeed, try try again.
